Another little bug, its been there a while, maybe a couple of months, sorry should have reported it earlier...

When watching live TV if i press and hold up or down on the remote to fast scroll thru the channels on the osd, kodi freezes and reboots.
Seems I can reproduced this everytime, anyone else want to check it out for me, in case its just me.

Regards

Bucky

Yes I can reproduce it, but you have to stay on the arrow for a long time.
Normally no one makes such a thing but this should not happen...

If you can identify the build when this started, that would help.


Well I went back about 4 months, checked about 20 builds, all still crashed while scrolling thru the pvr osd fast, so I gave up for a bit, and installed the latest build.
Guess What? It looks like someone has fixed it. @Aux_ could you please confirm yours is also working fine...

Kind Regards

Bucky

Edit: forget that it just takes a really long time to crash now, and no one will probably ever see it...

Since version # 0615 the built-in wget has broken, it is impossible to download the software update from this forum (an incomplete file is downloaded). In the version # 0614 and earlier - everything works.

Thanks, I'm able to reproduce on both RPi and Generic (x86_64) builds. How strange, this must be a bug in busybox as it only downloads 27869 bytes of the tar file. Sad

We'll look into it and try to find a fix ASAP.

You can use "curl -O" instead of wget as long is broken

@Asavah thank you, that looks like a good fix. I'll test/implement that instead just as soon as my main workstation isn't a useless pile of bits after a GPU meltdown. Sad

Hello I've got music drops and sometime glitches playing MP3 using Bluetooth Audio with RPI2 and USB BT dongle. Same apply for streaming internet radio. Playing the same files using the same BT dongle, speaker on Win10 by Kodi Chorus works fine.
Of course I'm nearby the dongle while trying.

Does somebody use Bluetooth Audio without issues?

Hey there,

i've got two questions:

1) I've upgraded to newest Version #621. When i connect via ssh and do a reboot, all hdmi-cec devices turn off. If i remember right, not all devices turnd off in previous versions.
2) I was connected to hidden wlan with Libreelec. Today (and i have no idea why) wlan connection could not be established anymore. I dont find my hidden wlan in connection list. (Haven't upgraded till this moment, was still running version #601)
Is there anyway to connect to a hidden wlan? connmanctl doesn't show my wlan and i cant install other software like wpasupplicant. Turned on the Startup wizard (renamed oe_config.xml) and there was also no way to connect to hidden wlan.

Thanks for your help

i've got two questions:

1) Can you identify the first build with this change of behaviour? I'd suggest checking your CEC settings but they're broken since the Settings library update so that isn't currently an option. Assuming your settings are unchanged it would be useful to know the first build when this behaviour starts.

2) If you go back to #0601 does the hidden network appear? If so, knowing the first build when it doesn't appear might be useful. Assuming it's a USB dongle of some sort, what chipset is your wifi using? Or is it the built-in WiFi on an RPi3?

In general though, hidden networks are not supported by the LE Settings GUI (and hiding a WiFi network is pointless, and generally only causes problems without being any benefit to security). This thread might be useful: https://forum.libreelec.tv/thread/2417-hidden-wifi/

Currently running #0621 and like others previously mentioned I have also noticed clock occasional being cut in the Estuary GUI in a number of recent nightly builds. Tonight I catched an occurrence of the issue.

In my usage case issue has always occurred after watching a catch-up stream and immediately after dropping back into GUI at end of playback.
Once I return back another step within Estuary GUI, clock view is corrected.

no ETA, but now that the inputstream add-on interface has swtiched to the new API, the add-on can be adjusted accordingly, which means that those changes and improvements can now be integrated.
